Fujifilm’s X- and XT-se­ries mir­ror­less cam­eras com­bine tra­di­tional styling with cut­ting-edge in­no­va­tive tech­nol­ogy, mak­ing them travel-fo­cused cam­eras in a class of their own


The X100F, be­ing the fourth it­er­a­tion of Fujifilm’s well-re­spected X100 se­ries, still uses the same 35mm equiv­a­lent 23mm f/2 lens, and draws on the same clas­sic de­sign cues. How­ever, be­neath its trade­mark outer shell, al­most ev­ery­thing has changed.

This evo­lu­tion of its core fea­ture set sees a 24.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS III sen­sor and X-Pro­ces­sor Pro im­age pro­ces­sor re­al­ize rich high-res­o­lu­tion stills, while ex­pand­able sen­si­tiv­ity to ISO 51,200 en­sures the ut­most in im­age qual­ity, even in low light. In ad­di­tion, a height­ened hy­brid aut­o­fo­cus sys­tem now uti­lizes 91 to­tal points, in­clud­ing 49 phase-de­tec­tion points, for quick, ac­cu­rate fo­cus­ing. The cam­era boasts Fujifilm’s Ad­vanced Hy­brid Viewfinder, which meshes both op­ti­cal and elec­tronic view­ing means in a switch­able man­ner, and of­fers ad­justable mag­ni­fi­ca­tion for the elec­tronic rangefinder func­tion for more pre­cise man­ual fo­cus con­trol.

The cam­era’s film-sim­u­la­tion modes, like the tonally rich ACROS mono­chrome or Clas­sic Chrome modes, en­sure your im­ages will truly cap­ture the mood of his­toric sites or sto­ries at play on the street.

Fujifilm’s X-T20 re­places the X-T10 and brings with it a host of new fea­tures, mak­ing it a sleek mir­ror­less cam­era de­signed for mul­ti­me­dia shoot­ers. Stay­ing true to the X-se­ries’ func­tional de­sign ethos, it com­bines an SLR-style viewfinder with Fujifilm’s tac­tile and time­less dial-based op­er­a­tion.

The com­pact cam­era packs a punch, with a 24.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS III sen­sor and X-Pro­ces­sor Pro im­age pro­ces­sor — the same combo boasted by the X-T2. The sen­sor and pro­ces­sor take ad­van­tage of an ex­tended sen­si­tiv­ity range to ISO 51,200, a 14fps con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing rate when work­ing with the elec­tronic shut­ter, and 4K video ca­pa­bil­i­ties.

Its retro-in­spired cam­era-body de­sign in­cor­po­rates a tilt­ing 3.0-inch LCD touch­screen and a 2.36-mil­lion-dot elec­tronic viewfinder, as well as ded­i­cated shut­ter-speed, drive-mode, and ex­po­sure-com­pen­sa­tion di­als for di­rect, in­tu­itive con­trol over ex­po­sure and shoot­ing set­tings.
